For the first time in Sri Lanka, DSL is introducing the genuine auxiliary battery for hybrid vehicles with more advantages to Sri Lankan motorists.
Douglas & Sons Ltd. (DSL), the market leader in imported batteries in Sri Lanka, launched GS-Yuasa batteries on 8 October, adding to its range yet another acclaimed and prominent brand.
High quality and durability
GS-Yuasa batteries are manufactured in Japan and are renowned for high quality and durability. This is the only Japanese battery currently available in the Sri Lankan battery market.
GS-Yuasa has strategic alliances with all leading Japanese vehicle manufacturers such as Toyota, Honda and Mitsubishi to provide technologically advanced high quality batteries.
The Japanese industrial giant has been supplying lead-acid auxiliary batteries for hybrid cars since Toyota Motor first began mass-production of hybrid cars in 1997. GS-Yuasa batteries have been chosen for the Aqua, Prius, Lexus CT200h and other models, counting a total of more than 2.7 million units shipped.
Kunihiko Hirotsu, representative from GS Yuasa International division speaking at the launching ceremony highlighted that the GS-Yuasa battery was chosen by Toyota Motor Corporation due to its safety features.
He explained that the auxiliary batteries in hybrid cars are installed inside the cabin of the car. A normal automotive battery may release toxic gases when charging and could be dangerous for the passengers. This may even lead to an explosion inside the vehicle. The advanced technological feature in the GS-Yuasa battery on the other hand ensures that safety is guaranteed.
Hybrid cars use nickel metal hydride and lithium-ion batteries for driving power, as well as a lead-acid battery for auxiliary use. The auxiliary battery plays an important role in the power supply of the vehicle. The auxiliary battery supplies power to the hybrid system and the car electronics when the power switch of the hybrid car is turned on and supplies power to the car electronics when the power switch is turned off or during the accessory mode. With highly sophisticated and modern technology GS-Yuasa makes driving a power packed experience.
GS-Yuasa Corporation Japan is the merged entity between world leading manufacturers of automobile batteries; Yuasa Battery Inc and Japan Storage Battery, (manufacturers) of GS-Yuasa. GS Yuasa Corporation is listed in Tokyo Stock Exchange with a value of more than 33 Billion Yen. Maintenance Free battery range
DSL also launched the GS-Yuasa Maintenance Free (MF) battery range to fulfill the requirements of all vehicle types. GS-Yuasa batteries with superior technology are now available with all DSL dealers island-wide.
Having carefully studied the high performance level, reliability and long battery life of GS-YUASA, DSL now offers 24 months full warranty.
